limbaugh, and rush understood what it was too opinionated freely on the airwaves when he was in sacramento california he had to live under the fairness doctrine guidelines. when he located in sacramento he told me that it was amazing there was nobody doing political talks and he said this is a cakewalk, what form this is going to be. then he had to succumb to the fairness doctrine by giving an hour of a program to somebody in this community concerned about what he said so he had to move over and he says it was the most boring hour of retial i have ever done in my life and that is what was happening back then. there was no question about it. what we saw immediately was all of a sudden we could put commentators on the radio and have three opinions on the radio. we didn't have to act as moderator's anymore. talk radio was so boring in the 1980's you could report or lost ought or report any kind of matter like that. put it was share your favorite recipes -- there were some good programs. i don't want to denigrate talk radio back in. there was worse williams and sally jessy raphael and they did

and fox news and rush limbaugh have been their three targets. in the long run, you can't govern that way. and i think it weakens them. it sure doesn't weaken fox news shep. bill: that's for sure. the ratings are in record territory for us. mr. speaker, thanks very much. reappreciate it. >> good to be with you. bill: the dumbest things of the week. there were plenty of things to choose from. we will run them down for you as the factor continues all across the u.s.a. and all around the world. naing onon ud r. weotototatatininci on us cars for everybody anont cfidedence ininin o. caususususlendnds s ve a a a t tcks. ququq n . >> bill: dumbest things of the week. i'm a simple man. i like the concept because it is simple. here now to present the massively dumb radio host faith sally and fox news correspondent julia cuddy. you select add hillary clinton situation but not what she said, what secretary of state clinton said. but what was said about her trip to africa? roll the tape. >> she had done 22 speeches and five interviews and she was exhausted and clearly some would say having
or sean hannity and rush limbaugh. i find this as almost unprecedented. we just saw a veteran at the time but ship -- tim bishop town hall. let's look at these people that are the angry mobs. it is an elderly woman asking a question. this is all part of the angry mob. roll that tape. >> harry reid and the rest of the people in congress and the senate, are they going to be on the same plan they are asking us to be on? sean: does she seem like an angry mob? she seems like she could be my mom. >> according to barbara boxer, if you dress neatly, you are neatlyrent-a-mob -- you are a rent-a-mob. they outrage has been stirred up and they have the nerve to accuse this legal lady and the veteran and other people of being a fake. you cannot get actors that. sean: what is the net result? i think i know the answer. if you try to smear the american people, as far as i recall, we are still "we, the people," if you discredit them, what is the net political fallout of doing something like that? >> i think the net political fallout is this is an act of desperation. they see this thing slipping away betwe
is she mangles a whole bunch of facts, but she also gets some signs off that rush limbaugh. go ahead and copy number of things she says that are wrong. roll the tape. >> you might have heard their philosophical leader, i think his name is rush limbaugh. and he said early on i hope that he does. you know what that means? if the president, your commander-in-chief fails, america fails. now, when a senator says that this will be his waterloo, and we all know what happened at waterloo, then we have him and he fails. do we want a failed state of the united states russian ark so remember, they are spreading fear and they are trying to see that the first president who looks like me fails. and i want you to know, people look at the united states as a country that has changed its way and has elected someone from kenya and kansas. i will put it like that. >> that's quite a headline again. did you know that wreck obama was from kenya and kansas westerner and i think it's from fighting to eisenhower was from kansas. i'm from kansas. stu and his mother is from kansas and his father is from kenya.
blaming boogiemen. stop blaming top delay. stop blaming karl rove. they have no power. rush limbaugh has no power. fox news has no power to stop this. democrats own washington, d.c. so stop setting up strawmen. like barack obama's been doing from day one and then knocking them down. >> does that mean i can still blame newt gingrich for quite a bit of our problems? >> you and dale hunt can get together and have a newt party if you want. >> don't give them a target. >> seriously, it's just laughable. they always set up these straw men and knock them down. people have figured it out. wait a second. they own the senate. they own the house. they own the white house. conservatives can't do anything. we can't do anything to stop healthcare reform. if democrats decide they want to pass healthcare reform, there's not a damn thing a conservative in america can do to stop it. >> joining the conversation, contributing editor to "new york" magazine, gabriel sherman. he writes, "brooks frequently seems more sympathetic toward obama than the liberal paul krugman. he has written columns praising obama's
like premier broadcasting who simulates large shows like rush limbaugh among them. that is a simulation of the fine we have been discussing, which is dollar for dollar of their total operating costs. just to be fair. glenn: so it's not a fine if you're a conservative radio station? >> he has laid out a road map for liberal attacks to attack conservative and christian talk stations, however. glenn: ok. >> you said forget the fairness doctrine. a month after his report came out he wrote a report called "forget the fairness doctrine" in which he uses a way for them to threaten licenses if they are politically opposed to what they're saying on the air. glenn: it is all localism. >> an media diversity. glenn: yeah. they will take those licenses, and keep everybody afraid to put anything on the air. if they do put something on the air, somebody can challenge it, they can take that license away from them at the end of the year, and give it to some acorn-like group, or some minority group, and then you have lost that radio station. >> it's freddie mac and fannie mae for the radio industry is wh
say she's pro abortion and i remember rush limbaugh even back in june said her record on abortion is not clear. what is your objection to her nomination? >> she's been evasive on a number of questions. i met with her privately. i asked her some fairly simple questions about the constitution, the bill of rights. she seems more founded in precedent than in upholding the constitution. and a number of us are very concerned about an activist court that's trying to expand what the constitution intends for the federal government to do. >> do you think that her record has been a record of an activist? >> we have some problems with a number of her decisions, particularly on bill of rights questions such as the second amendment. the decision that she made about the firemen was questionable. a lot of her speeches suggest that she has a different idea of what a justice should do. but she had some confirmation conversions, and she came back to the point of view of a constructionist type of judge. but she has not been consistent in her comments and seems very evasive wit
pressed by the likes of rush limbaugh and cnn's lou dobbs. and that controversy led dobbs to take a very personal swipe at msnbc's rachel maddow. so is some of the cable commentary getting out of line? should there be a line you can't cross without getting fired? and why are we still discussing this skip gates arrest? joining me now, amanda moore, and michelle cottle, senior editor of the new republic. is calling the president a racist simply out of bounds? >> yes. >> and yet, there doesn't seem to be any great uproar about it. >> i don't know. that's the part that surprises me a little. but there's a lot -- i guess it would be funny if it weren't so, and here's a word we've heard a lot of lately, stupid. here is a man who has a white mother. here's a man who was raised by two white grandparents, who obviously adored him and who he adores. here's a man at so-called white culture than glenn beck is, and yet we have to hear this kind of commentary. it's quite remarkable. the only thing i would say about this, there's a long history of people towards african-americans. i was reminded in 185
are being encouraged by the likes of rush limbaugh, whose website compares reform supporters to nazis. but a conservative group that's backing the protest insists the anti-reform movement is real. how do you respond to the charge that this is all orchestrated and artificial if it's coming from talk show host and websites? >> then you wont see the massive turnouts that you're seeing at each and every event. the average person is at work when rush limbaugh is on the radio. >> reporter: a bystander listening in came right up to us and say, ditto. >> you happen to agree with this gentleman? >> i do. >> reporter: democrats are also flexing their grassroots. these former obama volunteers were back in campaign mode. >> i think you have some folks who are very anxious about change who really love to play the fear card. >> reporter: cory says it's about facts, not fear. but time and again, he falsely compared democratic health care proposals to a canadian-style american system. the ones coming out of the house are not canadian style -- >> it's a bad notion in any way, shape or form. >> reporte
limbaugh. this guy in miami beach is blaming president obama for the state of his job? he should be blaming bush. bush was in office eight years. z no are a result much 12 years of republicans taking jobs to other countries. >> you talked about folks who have stopped looking for jobs. >> out sources has continued over the years. there's also jobs that are in sourced there is a little bit of a balance. in terms of the stats. you are counted as unemployed if you are actively looking. if you've stopped looking, then you become the discouraged worker and you drop off the rolls. i think it is best to look at the general trend on the unemployment rate. we are seeing some of the worst unemployment we've had since the depression. host: in the hartford current, they have a map of the u.s. this is not seasonally adjusted. the states in white have unemployment rate below 8%. in light orange social security 8-10%. the states in dark orange, the unemployment rate is above 15%. can you explain why it seems more people are out of work along the coasts? >> part has to do with the real estate bubble we had.
. >> you might have heard their philosophical leader, i think his name is rush limbaugh ap he said early on, i hope that he fails. do you know what that means? if the president, your commander-in-chief fails, america fails. so remember, they are spreading fear and they're trying to see that the first president who looks like me fai fails. >> wow, that was california congress woman diane watson at a town hall meeting in los angeles and that's not the only shocking thing she had to say. there is even more. joining me to weigh in is radio talk show host and fox news contributor mike gallagher been a while. >> it's been a while. i don't know if president obama would be complimented or offended to hear that he looks like her, he may not like that comparis comparison. >> that's another question. you bring up a good point. i'll bet the president wantsening to do with that comment because the president does not want race brought into the equation ands' made that very clear. why did diane watson oon make it an issue. she knows rush limbaugh criticism has nothing to do with race so why bring it up? >
rush limbaugh and everybody else tried to destroy john mccain. i didn't want john mccain to win the nomination because i didn't think he was conservative enough. guess what, john mccain won the nomination anyway. playing to the hard, hard, hard right base will not win primaries. don't you agree. >> look, i agree -- i think palin could get into finals. i basically agree with this but look at this. the red hot radio stuff. look where the country is, three of the top four best selling books on the "new york times" list, mark levin, dick morris, number one best seller on the paper back, glen beck, orielle number ten there. the country is in an angry populist mood. the bumper stickers, death panels, it's not sophisticated, but i'll tell you what is igniting these people, they have simple ideas and they are angry. >> sure, pat. the same thing igniting people on the left that said there was no god. you can read in 2003, 2004, god is dead. the god delusion, all a reaction to george w. bush, it's very natural. it will sell books, drive up ratings. it will not win elections. willie, we've
to rush limbaugh or something. what? the government? no, they got to be out of it. as though he had base -- base-itis or something. >> i don't know. i don't know. lil we, what do you think? >> i think -- i think we should go to politico? >> isn't that something, though? he did. he gets in a lot of trouble. >> well, you know. he is kind of a shoots from the hip a little bit. >> he does. >> by the way he operates and sometimes that gets him in a little bit of trouble i guess you can say. >> maybe behind the scenes and starts the raise money and organizing and things such as this. >> if your interview. >> stop being interviewed. unless on this show. >> always welcome here. >> so who do we have got politico? >> patrick flavin. let's talk about the politics. but the politics of the passing of the ted kennedy, you eve heard whispers already, some democrats about the health care debate saying let's win this one for teddy. they have to be careful with that, though, don't they? >> they do. for two reasons, for democrats the name of kennedy is golden and cherished but the name kennedy means libera
and right and wrong. >>> and rush limbaugh comparing president obama's health care low e lowgo to a swas ka. how does the talk compromise is whole darn country, contessa? >>> then women, this is the result, contessa, women have been driven to drink. the statistics show it. that story of the wrong way driver who killed seven, including four children, may not be an isolated case. a new report suggests women are drinking more than ever. >>> swine flu in schools. a live news conference this hour to announce the government's plan of action. dr. nancy snyderman will join us. it is 9:00 a.m. friday morning. nice to see you. >>> welcome. a nice day. >> this is big story of the morning here. this was supposed to be a town hall in tampa, florida. hosted by congresswoman, kathy castor. >> you work for us, you work for us. >> police estimated 1500 people tried to cram into an event. they jammed up against the doors. one guy says he was actually man handled, may end up going to police about it. >> one of them took my arm and doing a arm -- arm twist, tore my watch off, then the other one grabbed me by t
on republicans, limbaugh. go ahead. caller: my senator, he did call the house and invited me in on a town hall meeting. he must know i'm a democrat. he was only calling on people for their comments. i was thinking about it while i was on the phone. he's saying all this stuff happening. like the other caller earlier said, there's really not a bill. i felt like he was giving out misunderstood to all of us. it is good that he called but i didn't get to comment. i didn't like the fact that he was giving his opinions rather than listening to any questions. host: how many questions did he take in caller: it went about 45 minutes. he just talked to us rather than listening to what we had to say. host: some people had comments. they were telling him about situations they were going through. thanks for calling in. >> people are either eligible for medicaid another 800-0000 are many that have healthcare. you are really looking at about 8 million people. that's a question you can have. you know right there they aren't telling you the truth. jo they don't cover the issue at these hearings. i paid 22 of t
is the president of as well. how many republicans are going to say, ok, rush limbaugh, you have to get over this because he is reaching out. host: are you supporting the public option? caller: honestly, i do not understand the public option. if it makes sense, we should try a, a public option or cooperative. -- we should try it, public option or cooperative. host: thank you. next caller. caller: i worked for the post office, our insurance -- we had every time that we wanted to pick from. we chose ourselves from all over the country. i do not see why we cannot have that now for everybody. host: next call from michigan on the independent line. good morning. what do you think about president barack obama? is he compromising too much? caller: i think that have a unique perspective on this situation. i am a health care provider that happens to own his own business. i have a daughter with a pre- existing condition. i also have first-time knowledge of the single payer run system in ireland. i think that the system out there does the most to decrease the prices in health insurance, and i will leave
news and to disrupt -- rush limbaugh and to disrupt the organized campaigns. you noticed that most of the disruption is in democratic town halls. they are not disrupting republican town halls. that let's you know it is planned. unfortunately like this last lady said, they are usually older people who are already on socialize medicare and either don't realize they are on socialized medicine already. texting host: thank you, jamie. a common from teresa from twitter. peaceably assemble. " the new york times" on the front-page reports on how people start their day with waking up and getting on line first. coffee can wait, the day's first stop is on line. i will pull this and just read a piece of the story. the surge in early risers is reflected an on line and wireless traffic patterns. internet companies that used to watch traffic levels rise only when people booted up at work now see the uptick much earlier. a boston company that analyzes internet use says web traffic and the united states gradually decline to midnight until 6:00 a.m. on the east coast and then a huge morning caffeine
are dying every day because of that. >> if that all wasn't enough, conservative radio host rush limbaugh is fanning the flames by making analogies comparing president obama to adolf hitler. on his radio show yesterday, he said, quoting here, the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. that prompted strong words from the white house. >> i think any time you make references to what happened in germany in the '30s and '40s, i think you're talking about an event that has low quibbling. and i think any time anyone ventures to repair anything to that, they're on thin ice. and it's best ndenot deployed. >> so everyone's all fired up here. so asking what do you think about this, how everything's all ramped up in this debate about health care and the town hall meeting. so i posted this question on my facebook page. got a huge response. this is what hal wrote -- i think people are fed up with no answers, answers. they want real answers to real questions and they're not getting them. that's why hal thinks the protesters are really getting rally at these town halls. allison wro
to the "playbook" when the white house appointed rush limbaugh as the republican chief spokesman. we're going to hear them trying to make republicans own what's going on or be blamed for what's going on in these town meetings. today the democratic national committee is out with an ad talking about angry mobs and very interesting for the first time the democratic party taking on, including a democratic web video which will surely be a cable ad. they're including that clip we've seen here on "morning joe" of those in the town meeting, an e-mail urging supporters to turn out today for vice president biden in new york, talking about angry mobs. so the idea is to either expose or caricature, depending on where you sit, what's going on in these groups that are fighting back. some of them encouraged by conservative groups, business groups. some of it probably genuine. >> mike, you mentioned the ad. let's watch a piece of that and show people what you're talking about. >> the right wing extremists. they lost the election. they lost on 0 the recovery act, the budget and children's health care. they've
